Shay was a rising research star, an inspirational colleague, and a much loved and valued member of the the School of Computer Science and Statistics, ADAPT and the wider Trinity community.

Shay’s legacy is enormous.  An expert in Information Retrieval, his peer-reviewed publications, his supervision of cutting-edge doctoral research, and his leadership of internationally acclaimed research projects have transformed the boundaries of the discipline.  As a colleague and as a friend, Shay’s enthusiasm, his creativity and his approach to his work was inspirational.  This memorial service will be an opportunity for friends and colleagues to remember someone who will never be forgotten.
